Getting to grips with Atoms and Elements - a free lapbook folder

Free to download and print, interactive lapbook folder all about Atoms and Elements

If you are looking for a simple introduction to what science teaches about Atoms and Elements, you might like this folder printable, which can be made into a lapbook or put into your interactive notebooks.

Before I continue, I just want to interject with a sort of disclaimer here .... much of science is based on theory, not always proven facts.
And so when teaching our children different branches of scientific knowledge for their academic school studies, it's important to explain this to them, especially when scientific thought contradicts or opposes the Qur'an and Sunnah.

Reader question: When a child asks about school and finding friends their age.

Home School FAQs. Socialisation and asking about school. Reader questions over at a Muslim Home School
It's funny, when people think of home education what often tends to come to mind first is socialisation and peers.
And then when we think of main stream school, we think exactly the opposite; finding both teachers and parents alike telling the kids they are at to school to learn not to socialise. Go figure!

This months reader question asks about socialisation and kids asking about school.

You can ask your homeschool questions through the contact page, Facebook,  or Instagram and help build a list of Home School FAQ's which I hope will benefit our community bi'ithnillah. 

I want to apologise in advance for the text in this is a little all over the place with changing sizes and fonts....I don't know what happened but I can not figure out how to adjust it to follow the default font settings - and I have tried everything I know!
Please forgive the erraticness!

Reader question: Choosing between home-education and School

Home school FAQs - your questions answered: Choosing between homeschool, public and Islamic schools
It may or may not surprise you to know, that most of us look for the answers to the same homeschool questions.

Many of the questions I receive from you guys are very similar, and so last month I announced the launch of a new segment to build up an on-going list of FAQ's to give you an opportunity to ask your homeschool questions and make it easier to search them out bi'ithnillah.

I'll endeavour to answer as many as possible inshaAllah, so please do keep checking back, and if you have a question you'd like to send in, you can post it through the contact form.

So as they say, without any further ado, let's jump in with our first question:

Creative homeschool projects: The hadith of the four best women

Home school project ideas: Booklet based on the hadith of the four best women in Islam
With the number of blogs and education websites that are available now, it seems that ready made printables are becoming the work of choice for both parents and teachers because they offer a ready-to-go solution for quick easy lessons.

And this is awesome, don't get me wrong, I love a printable...I make and share plenty of them!

However, I fear that with this ease we as parents and educators find, we are kinda short-changing our children by not giving them so much opportunity to be creative and more hands on in their approach.

And this creative thinking is so important to their growth.

One thing I love seeing is kids original work. I'm not so imaginative when it comes to setting out projects, so being able to see what other families have done certainly helps me to direct the girls workings in a more authentic way.

The wait is over: ebook for Muslim homeschoolers is finaly here!

Advice for the Muslim Homeschooler ebook

I have a huge announcement to make in this post and I've been itching to share.
Advice to the Muslim Homeschooler has finally been launched as an e-book Alhamdulillah. Yay!

One thing apparent about home-schooling and the Muslim community world wide, is it is a relatively new concept for us. 

Although thousands (if not millions) of families have been educating at home for decades, (particularly in America) it is only in more recent years that we find Muslim families adopting this lifestyle choice and it seems to be gaining in popularity super-fast.

This is great for all of us because it means our circles get bigger and there is more support to go round.

Whilst there is a wealth of information and support available on a secular level (I have indeed benefited greatly from it alhamdulillah) there isn’t so much from within our own Muslim communities yet.
So that is where this “book” comes in to play, and it’s my humble offering to you my dear reader.
